UNI-Prep review, submitted by Scott.
As others have pointed out in many of the UNI-Prep reviews, the course is good but the rate of feedback on assignments and answers to questions sent by email is slow and at times frustratingly slow. It feels like you are completely on your own when you take this course. Sometimes, you get lucky and someone from UNI-Prep gets back to you within a day. Most other times, you won’t get a reply in the same week, if at all. Also, I don’t think UNI Prep is accredited by an internationally recognized organization. I read up on Accreditat and it just doesn’t seem that legit. From what I can gather, TEFL programs pay Accreditat an annual fee just to be able to say they are “accredited”.
On the good side, the course was intense and covered an enormous amount of content. For me, I thought the module on Classroom Management was the most useful because no matter how much you know about TEFL that knowledge can go out the window if you can’t manage your EFL students well enough so they listen to and absorb what you are teaching them. There was also another module on what to expect when teaching English in different countries, which I also thought was an excellent theme to have in the course. All of the rest, such as teaching grammar, you could pick up by looking at YouTube videos or buying a good grammar book. At the end of the day, though, you need the TEFL certificate if you want any chance of teaching the language online or abroad.
